De Gea Wants To Break Records

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea is only three games away from registering 100 appearances for the Red Devils, and he is more excited than ever to achieve the milestone.

The 23-year-old joined United from Atletico Madrid in June 2011, and is set to make his 100th appearance against Tottenham Hotspur on December 1st provided he stays injury free.

“One hundred, eh? Wow!” said De Gea.

“I'll be delighted to reach that figure. It makes me very happy and I want to make it to 200 and then 300 appearances.”

De Gea, though, is not stopping there and is planning on spending a long time between the sticks for United, and even one day hopes to overtake Alex Stepney's record 539 appearances as a United keeper.

“The record is a lot of games. You never know though. At the moment, that figure seems very high but I'll take it one game at a time,” added De Gea.

“I hope to play as many games as I can for Manchester United and, who knows, maybe one day I will reach that number and go even higher.”

De Gea initially struggled in the Premier League with critics complaining he was not physical enough, but has since bulked up in the gym and is now enjoying his time between the posts for United.

“I'm very happy with my form. I feel like this is a particularly good moment in my career right now and I hope to continue,” said De Gea.

“I do a lot of work in the gym these days and I enjoy that. I have also changed the food I eat and that's helped me put on muscle and bulk up.

“It's been a big change, but it's working.”
